Volunteers needed for stewardship in Michigan state parks

Several state parks in southern Michigan will host volunteer stewardship workdays in December. Volunteers are needed to cut invasive, non-native shrubs like glossy buckthorn, autumn olive, multi-flora rose and others. It’s a great way to enjoy the outdoors while restoring and learning more about high-quality, unique ecosystems.

Workdays will take place:

Saturday, Dec. 1 at Warren Dunes State Park (Berrien County), 10 a.m.-1 p.m.
Saturday, Dec. 1 at Highland Recreation Area (Oakland County), 9 a.m.-1 p.m.
Saturday, Dec. 8 at Warren Dunes State Park (Berrien County), 10 a.m.-1 p.m.
Saturday, Dec. 15 at Fort Custer Recreation Area (Kalamazoo County), 10 a.m.-1 p.m.

More information about volunteer stewardship workdays, including a calendar of opportunities, is available at michigan.gov/dnrvolunteers.

To volunteer, please register by completing and submitting the stewardship volunteer registration form.
